I never liked the term 'Rugged Software', what about Robust/Resilient Software?

I still have not fully rationalised why I don't like (as security professional and as a developer) the term (and some parts of the concept) of the Rugged Software

Recently when talking about similar concepts (i.e. writing secure code/applications) I found myself talking about the need to create Robust/Resilient Applications.

Isn't Resilient Software a better term to describe applications/code that are able to correctly handle, mitigate and react to malicious behaviour/input?
